A note from Mrs. A. and B.

Hello to our wonderful Wildcats!! We still have two weeks left, let's finish them strong!!

We have started to schedule students for next year. An email went out to each 7th grade student several weeks ago with a link to a Google form for selecting your course of interest for next year. That form is also on the Warren Website. Please make sure that you complete that form so that you have input into your "elective" for next year. In the event you don't fill it out we will choose a course of interest for you.

We love hearing from you and if you need anything, continue to reach out to us. We are just call, text, video chat (your choice) away. Just complete a request to see the counselor form which is located on the Warren website. Take care of yourself and take care of each other.

As everyone settles into learning from home the school counseling office encourages everyone to stay focused on finishing the year strong.

It is important to keep a schedule, a daily routine. It is also important to give yourself breaks throughout the school day. Take breaks from your computer screen; move around; go for a walk(if possible) and get some fresh air.
